    Shake the ammonia bottle. If it doesn't foam and bubble the ammonia should work. Sure bet, however, is ACE hardware brand Janitorial strength ammonia.

    Determining how much ammonia to add is a process. When your tank is full and your filters are running, add a tablespoon of ammonia. Wait 30 minutes then test. If the ammonia is less than 4 ppm, then add a little more. Wait another 30 minutes and test again. Repeat until you 4 ppm and you're off and running. Try not to overdose or it will slow things down. Follow the fishless cycling stickie here on the forum to the letter and 3 - 4 weeks later, you'll have a cycled tank.

    Good luck!
